I haven't stopped by CenturiOn's blog in a while, but it seems he's taken a break from swimming in cyberspace. He posted the following:
"I've been on vacation for almost two weeks, which was nice. However, part of that time was spent assessing personal priorities, and it turns out that as much as I like blogging and believe I have something to say, it's at the bottom of the list of personal priorities -- and things which I say I value more than the blog are getting pushed out. For example, I have a lot of weight to lose; you can't lose weight if you don't exercise, and I only have a fixed number of hours in the day. I also have two children who deserve to have a better Dad than the one who sits in front of that stupid flat screen monitor half the time, and I have a wife who works much harder than the average wife who deserves not to have to work that hard -- she deserves to have a better husband than I am.There are also the issues of whether I am doing in real life what I blog so passionately about here, and again there being only so many hours in the day, you get the idea. What about my church? What about that trailer park? What about my pastor? What about the Gospel and lost people?"
Frank is absolutely correct about priorities. I likewise have struggled with which way best to use my time. It's always a constant battle. For those of you who keep an active blog, you know how much time simply vanishes once one sits behind the keyboard. This is one of the reasons I limit myself to not interacting with most of the blogback comments. It takes long enough to put posts together, and interacting with multiple comments from multiple people takes equally as long, if not longer. However, I do appreciate the comments, and I do read them.
